The Nazis committed a host of atrocities during the Second World War, but chief among them was their attempted extermination of the Jewish people, along with many other minorities and marginalized groups.
As defeat loomed, the Nazis attempted to cover up the evidence of their actions by killing the witnesses and burning their extermination facilities to the ground. One of these sites, a death camp in Sobibor, Poland, was recently excavated, and what they found there is too shocking for words.
Among the Nazis’ many atrocities during World War II, the worst may have been the extermination camps set up across Europe to eradicate the Jewish people.
Poland, which Germany occupied from the beginning of the war, was home to many of the worst camps, including Auschwitz and Treblinka.
Sobibor was another camp where Jews and other marginalized groups were sent to die.
The camp was part of Operation Reinhard, under which 2 million people were systematically murdered.
